Woodforest National Bank® Volunteers with Junior Achievement® of Southeast Texas

Woodforest National Bank teaches financial literacy through Junior Achievement (JA) to several of the Houston and surrounding area schools.

Woodforest volunteers teach students of all ages the importance of financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. Depending on the program, the volunteers and students complete several activities, each activity is specifically designed for the student’s grade level.

Students in participating schools learn essential life skills to prepare them as they grow up and approach the world of work. The goal for the volunteers is to make the connection to the “real world”. The goal for the students is to make the connection between working, earning, and saving. The techniques the students learn from Woodforest volunteers and the JA curriculum help the students make informed choices in regards to their financial future.
